comment How to copy a file with filename “+” and rename it?
@MadHatter Although I haven't been able to resolve this issue without using the joker card i.e. "". Here is the solution I have been able to find ; #cp *DSC_0800 13x18_DSC_0800.JPG #rm + This seems to do the trick... I still wonder why I couldn't do it without using the * .... Since you reminded me of the * you get the bonus!

Thank you for your answer. I just found the problem. It was permission problem. @Iain has helped me solve it. Thank you again.

yeah it is world readable... So I am expecting my nose to be touched every 1 minute... And the result is : YAY! I can touch my nose... It seems the problem is in my script?? Could you please proof read my script if it won't be much of a bother? Because I can't find what's wrong with it... After all it does work when I call it as "sudo sh /home/renko/mysql.backup.sh"

comment Crontab doesn't start, no errors
no what i did is that i changed the cron clock to 10:45 which was a few moments ago. Its now "Tue Oct 18 10:48:39 EEST 2011 " according to the "date" command. Just for extra information : I have set the cron job to "45 10 * * * /home/renko/mysql.backup.sh > /home/renko/mysql_back_log.log"
